Fortune 500 Company Executive Wins Below Guideline Sentence

Ms. Lefeber successfully obtained a downward variance from the federal sentencing guidelines for her client, a Fortune 500 company executive who had pled guilty to a lengthy wire fraud and tax evasion scheme. In addition, Ms. Lefeber was able to reduce the amount of loss by hundreds of thousands of dollars, resulting in a lower sentencing guideline level and reduced restitution and forfeiture orders. Based upon Ms. Lefeber's vigorous arguments at sentencing, her client received a below guideline sentence and was permitted to defer his sentence for six months due to family circumstances.
